You would somehow remember a Cemetery called AGRAM CEMETERY or the OLD PROTESTANT CEMETERY . This lies between the cross roads of Trinity Church Road, Richmond Road, Victoria Road. The Cemetery is apparently in existance from 1805 and was closed in 1865. We ( Admiral OS Dawson, David Barnabas and Ronnie Johnson), with the help of the Military, are trying to restore this Historical Cemetery. If any of you have any of your RELATIONS or their FRIENDS buried at this Cemetery during the period 1805 to 1870, please help us by giving us any details you come across.
There are no tracable records on this Cemetery left in Bangalore, and to restore the graves (some are without name stones which are scattered around) we need the Cemetery Layout.

Just to clear up the air ...
before and after the dust has settled.... Hello All
Anglo-Indians, Ronnie and Maisy, welcomes all you delegates to the Reunion
IV, being held at Bangalore. I am sorry that I am not able to make it for
the functions because of work. I wish you have a great time, and all success
to the Guild who organised the whole function.
Special congrats to Ms.Hedwig Rego M.P., Glen Webber and Jos Fernandes, MLA for the efforts.
Just to set the record straight, there was an article based on an interview with a free-lance journalist belonging to "The Times of India", Bangalore which appeared in their newspapers about three weeks back, wherein the journalist has twisted and added his/her own assumptions, even coming to the conclusion that my wife Maisy and I would not be attending the function because the Guild persons were 'unfriendly". This is untrue, and I very much support the Reunion IV conducted by the Guild, and find them very encouraging, and if ever I had any such thoughts, I would never have any of their matter on this Anglo-Indian Home Page. This has hurt my wife and me, and many of those in the Guild whom I know personally, that the newspaper could twist and come to their own conclusion.
Should anyone feel that my wife and I have hurt their feelings, I am apologising for the trouble or unpleasantness caused by this article that was published. We have asked the newspapers to publish the corrections, but knowing them, I doubt very much they will do.
All the best for the New Year '98, from Maisy and Ronnie.
(PS: I have refrained from adding my own personal comments on the feed-back
on the Reunion for reasons quite obvious, but I have carried some of the
comments of others. This page is dedicated to all Anglo-Indians and not
just one group of them, and to give them a place on the map of Bangalore,
not to pull them down. What happened and what did not happen at the Reunion
is sometimes best not published, and as time goes by, I think we should look
to the future and see how best we can work towards it, I hope I do have your
support on this. It's easy to pull some one down, but it takes a lot of courage
to say a good word to someone. I do feel that it takes two hands to clap,
and I just cannot see anyone waving and clapping at the same time. My honest
prayer is to see that all the Anglo-Indians of Bangalore are united under
one ideal and not work against the Community by pointing fingers. One must
remember that it is four fingers pointing at you when you point one. Cheers,
Have a great day, Ronnie)
Day One: Last night (7th Jan '98) around 10 p.m., I received a call from Fr. Ronnie Prabhu, Rector of St. Joseph's Institutions, Bangalore who is a close friend of mine. He had been to the Reunion IV program, (as a special invitee. as many of St. Joseph's Old Boy's had come down for the program and were in and out of the School), and said that it was really good. The entertainment was excellent. Understand that my friend Wendy Dickson, was the one who prepared the Team for the entertainment. Morning's (8 Jan) newspaper report in the Deccan Herald, did mention that the Government Officials invited to preside did not turn up. (Guess their Election schedule hampered their attendance). There were about 500 delegates from Abroad and India ("The hall was jam-packed", says Fr. Ronnie). Also reported by the newspaper that about 30 or more Anglo-Indians demonstrated in front the Ashoka Hotel that the Delegation fees were too high for them and they could not attend, understand that the representation was made to Mr.Jos Fernandes, MLA. Will try and post you on the happenings as and when I meet Delegates or from the Newspapers.

Here's whats happening in Bangalore at the REUNION IV:
On the inaugural day (7th of Jan), the function got off to a controversial start as some Anglo-Indian protesters waved placards outside Hotel Ashok, the venue demanding that they could not afford the high fee levied to become a delegate. The over-crowded hall was thrilled with the beautiful cultural programme put up by Wendy Dickson and Priscilla Corner.
Apart from the choir which sang old melodies, there were some Cliff Richards numbers, a Calypso dance and a beautiful tableaux portraying the achievements of AI's in India and abroad. The evening was compered by Priscilla Corner and Marc Robinson, both noted theatre and TV personalities.
No government people turned up except for some Minister, and the Prime Minister could not attend because he would be breaking some Election Commission directive by attending and speaking at a minority meeting. (At least that was the excuse for the last minute withdrawal, from his office)
This was followed by dinner and an informal get-together, though most complained that the bar queue was too long and slow.
The morning was disastrous. We all went as according to the schedule, there was going to be an AGM (or so we thought). On arriving at the venue, we learnt that it was only a meeting of the International Federation. This is the group that decides where the next reunion will be held and so the meeting was only meant for the 20 odd members of the federation. Most delegates wished to watch proceedings but eventually the Federation postponed their meeting as they said that it would be violating their constitution. The morning became a free-for-all forum as most elected to stay on and speak on topics close to their heart. While some criticised the Anglo-Indian Guild who are the organisers, others blamed the Anglo-Indian Association for boycotting the entire proceedings. The symposium began at 3.30 pm and some of the papers that were presented were:
At the end of Day 2 there was a food festival in a carnival atmosphere as well as a dance.
Day 3 is a picnic day for those delegates who pay to go to a resort outside the city. Will tell you about that and Day 4 later.
Hope you can capture the spirit of the Reunion through these updates.
Garth Micheal .
Day 3 of the Reunion:
About 350 delegates opted to go on the picnic to Emerald Isle, a beautiful resort about 20 kms from Bangalore. We arrived at the resort by 11 AM and most found seats around the pool and the bar. Beer flowed, old couples danced to 'The Green Green Grass of Home", some played carroms (and looked like they hadn't played for 20 years), World-II beat India-II at cricket match (yes, you're right - with a tennis ball ), others frolicked in the water and the slippery slide --amidst all this the faithful played their bingo.
Lunch was excellent (chicken korma and peas pulao) and by 2 pm most delegates were so relaxed that they forgot to fight and could be seen discussing things amiably and hopefully working things out. (I would have loved to have cutlets and ball curry added!! - Ron)
Day 4 (10th Jan) is the last day of the reunion. A fashion show and International ball will be held at the hotel Ashok in the evening.
Lots of write-ups have been appearing in the newspapers about the reunion, some of it unfortunately about the battle behind the scenes of the reunion. In case you are keen to read some of this I could request Ronnie Johnson (who's been wonderfully helpful through his page) to put some of it on his site. Thanks for comments and let me know if you want any aspect of the reunion clarified or described in less/more detail.
An interesting bit that came out of the symposium on Day 2: a historian who spoke said that Anglo-Indian history and culture went back more than 2000 years and began when Alexander and his Greeks invaded India (in 600 BC...I'm just guessing) as his men settled down in India and married Indian wives. For according to the constitution of India, you must be of male European descent to be called and recognised as an Anglo-Indian. Wow! Did you all know that? Let's tell everybody about it.
Day 4 of the Reunion:
I think everyone enjoyed the last day. It started with a prayer service at the poolside of the Hotel Ashok. This was followed by a fashion show which was put up by a professional group that trains top models and beauty queens of India. All the models were professional Anglo-Indian ones including the reigning Miss Bangalore Sarah Connors.
Dinner was served by the pool and most delegates used this occasion to swap addresses and take photos, even as Jackie Kelly, a famous Bangalorean singer sang and jived by the poolside.
After dinner the International Ball began in the Banquet Room. Jiving, cha-cha-cha, medleys, the blues all waltzed the night away even as the younger generation tried slowing their legs to a different beat. Prizes for lucky tables, tickets, shortest dresses , oldest couple etc. were given out even as 'The Milestone' band and 'The Pink Champagne' band outdid each other to bring the farewell to a musical close.
While most delegates are going back (most with happy memories of the land of their birth), some plan to travel to other parts of India, and some are headed for Calcutta for the post-reunion to be held between the 17th and the 20th of Jan.
What was achieved at the reunion? I don't know. A lot of delegates made a lot of noise/promises/plans/speeches on Day 2 . Many of them said that they wanted to do something for the poorer Anglo-Indians of the city. I wonder.
Nevertheless, for me it felt good seeing so many of my community together. Oh, and learning aboout Alexander and the Anglo-Indian connection. I don't think the venue for the next Reunion has been set yet.
Hope you enjoyed the updates on the Reunion.
Hi All, I think Garth has captured all that there
was at the Reunion. I did meet a couple of delegates on Sunday (Fred Floate
(UK), Ms.Edith Nyss (UK), Maxi from Bankok, and a few others whose names
I did not seem to collect), and they all said that they had a great time at
the Picinic and Dance. Regarding some of the things that some wise delegates
from Canada came up with is best not to be recorded and also what some of
the newspapers did report, may have been a little spiced up for readers to
drool, and oposition parties to get worked up. I will put down from time
to time some of the genuine feed-back on the situation or post-Reunion blues!
Garth seems to have read my site inside out, thanks Garth for the comments,
do call me when you are free, we must meet sometime my number is 2240145
(Bangalore 80 , India 091 Codes to be added), also requesting you to collate
the Delegates List of Reunion IV and send me.

Subject: Anglo-Indians killed during 1940's riots
Dear Mr. Johnson:
Thanks for all your help! I have spoken with my dad regarding
the Clarke graves in Bangalore that you so kindly forwarded and he did
not recognize any of the names.
The following is the text you requested that I sent originally to the India roots list. PLEASE post it on the page you mentioned! Thanks again! :
I am an Anglo-Indian doing research on any Anglo -Indians, Domiciled Europeans, or British who were wounded or killed during the Muslim - Hindu riots in the 1940's, specifically in the years 1945-46.
I would be very grateful for any stories, and for any stories of A-I's killed or hurt in ANY subsequent violence in the 1950's-70's -- communist party riots included.
We are also doing an Anglo-Indian Oral History Project under the auspices of California State University - Fullerton. Please contact Cheryl Perreira CPERREIRA@FULLERTON.EDU if you would like to contribute your personal or family history. There are researchers conducting interviews world-wide. Our hope is to leave a lasting anecdotal record of Anglo-Indian culture before it is effectively squashed by our assimilation into other societies. It will be archived at California State University - Fullerton and permanently available to both scholars and the public.
Thanks in advance! Claire Clarke , DO1ST@AOL.COM

From: Esther Mary Lyons <e-Mail >
To: INDIA-L@rootsweb.com Resent-From: INDIA-L@rootsweb.com
I must share this inccident with you all because it may be of some concern to you in the near future. Last night my son went to the city, Sydney for the usual late night dances and social club of the teenagers in Australia. After midnight, he hired a taxi, to return home. On the way my son, who is only twenty, and the taxi driver, a young Pakistani it turned out, began a conversation regarding the recent state of affair between India and Pakistan. The driver then, in the middle of the conversation, asked my son where he came from and when he realised that my son was from India, he stopped the taxi and asked him politely to get off because he said he could not carry an Indian. My son said that he was an Anglo-Indian and the recent tense atmosphere in India had nothing to do with him, but he was unfortunately, left in the middle of the road to walk home at the late hours of the night. I have ofcourse made the complain to the taxi company but just the same I thought it was an important incident to take notice of for all of us who come from India!!

than to lay down one's life for his friends. ...... You did not choose Me,
